'Together, the four Keys of Power give the ruler of Grenda Lear absolute authority. But Queen Usharna divides the keys amongst her four children ... and tensions within the royal family and within Usharna's kingdom are set to explode into violence and betrayal. Prince Lynan is Usharna's youngest son, ignored by his mother and her court, always unsure of his own future. When fate hands him one of the magical Keys of Power, he suddenly finds that he is in control of his own destiny. Can Lynan, with the help of the giant Kumul, the crookback Ager, and Jenrosa the fledgling magician, survive long enough to claim his inheritance . . . '.
